Today GRAMMY Award-winning and multi-RIAA Platinum-selling group Casting Crowns released the official lyric video for “Scars in Heaven,” which can be viewed below. “Scars in Heaven” is the debut song from the forthcoming new studio album, which will release in November. This will be Casting Crowns’ ninth studio album.
Co-written by frontman Mark Hall and Matthew West, Hall began writing this song while watching his mom care for her parents as they passed away.
“Being a pastor and walking people through loss, there is this moment when we are suddenly very aware of their absence,” shares Mark Hall. “The world seems quieter. You realize you’re not going to hear their voice again. And in those moments, you feel the last moments of their life here. You may recall there was pain and there was suffering and there was a tragedy or there was weakness or there were wrong choices and your mind is cluttered with the last thing you remember.”
There has been so much heartache and loss across the globe this past year, and this song will resonate with everyone who has lost someone close either recently or as they remember from years past.
